Jannie Brandes-Brilleslijper
Birth: Oct. 24, 1916
Death: Aug. 15, 2003

Holocaust Survivor. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Brandes-Brilleslijper was a member of the wartime Jewish resistance in Amsterdam, forging documents to allow other Jews to escape Nazi persecution. After being deported out of the Netherlands, she served as a nurse in Nazi concentration camps, providing clothing, medicine, and food to fellow prisoners. While serving at the Bergen-Belsen work camp, she was the last person to see famed diarist Anne Frank alive. (bio by: Stuthehistoryguy)
